    1. First time I have grown that variety and I just picked it out of the blue off the table at the nursery. It is very pretty! I have not eaten any yet.

  2. You still have lots of rich color in your garden. I like the combos in the first few photos.

  3. Great vignettes!

    PS - Quick question -- When do you sow your lettuce?

    1. Aaron, seeds are sown here in February or March and in August for fall crops. I have become so frustrated with keeping up with seeds that I have come to the conclusion that buying plants is better for me. I planted these latest lettuce starts in late September.

  4. I'm not normally a fan of the Aster, but your photo of the Aster 'Monte Cassino' is just gorgeous!

  5. Very nice color all around but the first two shots of purple blooms with gold foliage are glorious in their richness!

  7. Great autumn colors! The purple and gold images are gorgeous, and I really like the Candy Lily, which I was not familiar with. Happy fall!

  9. That lettuce is as pretty as any flower. I just discovered that there are golden Mugo pines so it's exciting to see one.
